PLA Portfolio Assessment Course Subjects
- Calligraphy II (ART-285) 3.00 s.h.
- Continued study of freehand and mechanical repertoire of letter forms and calligraphic styles.
- Cleaning and Corrosion Control (AVM-111) 3.00 s.h.
- Identification of characteristics of metals and alloys, causes and types of corrosion, and mechanical/chemical removal of corrosion.
- Engineering Materials (EGM-350) 3.00 s.h.
- This course introduces the student to such engineering materials as metals, viscoelastic materials, ceramics, polymers, and semiconductors. The approach is interdisciplinary with stress upon the structure of materials. Various mechanical and thermal treatments are discussed and related to the stability of the resultant properties. The laboratory sessions implement and emphasize the effects of these mechanical and thermal treatments on the materials.
- Measurement and Controls (MFT-261) 3.00 s.h.
- An introduction to the study of measuring systems & components, digital & analog signals & their characteristics. Mechanical and electro-mechanical transducer elements to measure pressure, temperature, displacement, velocity, & acceleration. Static & dynamic performance of instruments, statistical analysis of experimental data, & a brief study of on-off, proportional, ratio & cascade control of processes & control elements.
- Materials Behavior in Reactor (NUC-362) 3.00 s.h.
- Study of the basic physics and chemistry of property changes of materials in operating reactors. The foundations of chemical corrosion, radiation damage and mechanical failure are established; thus the changes in reactor materials due to neutron flux, mechanical stresses, heat and chemical changes during operation can be understood. Effects on specific reactor materials are presented.
- Particles and Nuclear Physics (PHY-471) 3.00 s.h.
- Quantum mechanical treatment of alpha decay, electron and position emission, gamma radiation, nuclear models, nuclear reactions, parity, isotipes, fission, fusion, fundamental particles, antimatter.
- Basic Campaign Techniques (POS-170) 3.00 s.h.
- Students perform the basic mechanical responsibilities and techniques of a campaign manager.
- Technician Mechanical Ventilation (RET-121) 2.00 s.h.
- Physiological principles and techniques of mechanical ventilation of the patient in respiratory failure. Topics include: physics of mechanical ventilation, and maintenance and monitoring of patients with respiratory failure.
- Building Layout and Surveying (SUR-241) 3.00 s.h.
- Introduction to building layout, location, exterior & walls, applications of level & transit, including leveling, batter boards, alignment, location of mechanical equipment, modular & metric dimensions.
- Electronic Drawing (GRA-221) 3.00 s.h.
Students will be able to prepare a set of working drawing of an electromechanical device, utilizing a printed circuit of their own design. In so doing, they will demonstrate their ability to prepare schematic and wiring diagrams, as well as their understanding of the principles and concepts of electronic standardization and miniaturization, including printed and thin-film circuits and wiring harnesses.
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:
- Describe and demonstrate the process of lay out and documentation of circuit diagrams.
- Explain the terminology of electronic drawing and electronic symbology.
- Demonstrate and explain the theory and practice of reference designators and component sequence numbering.
- Explain the importance of standards (ASME and ISO) in the modern electronic graphics environment.
- Identity and create electro-mechanical layout and design factors.
- Identify and create unit and subassembly design elements.
- Identify and create assembly drawings of electro-mechanical parts and enclosures.
- Create dimensioned drawings of electro-mechanical hardware and flat patterns.
